    Virage TXi fuel lines replacment

    I have had a problem replacing the fuel lines on a Virage TXi. One of the 2 lines outs from the gas tank has a lager nib that the fuel line slides over and it is a major pain. It is my understanding that the lines are all the same size. I was going to do 2 TXi today and wanted to know if there are any tricks I need to know to make this a less painless job.

    What size were the old fuel lines? Can you read the size info stamped into the old fuel hose?

    What size fuel hose are you trying to use?

    Are the clear fuel lines good to use? If so where what is the best place to get them?

    The 2 gray ones that come from the gas tank to the injectors.

    I would only use reinforced fuel hose.

    The best quality hose would be genuine Marine rated fuel hose. Details can be found in the Ficht section of my signature links.

    Awesome info here! thanks K447 for all your work. I'm In the middle of rebuilding my ficht fuel pump assy and need to replace the grey tempo line from the tanks to the injectors. I'm thinking of using mpi 315-0146 fuel lines. Good choice or is there something better? I did review K447 ficht section and didn't find a manufacturer name

    The MPI 315-0146 is what I utilize and I've had good results. Warm the hose, with a heat gun, and grease the barb to slide it over the 5/16" hose barbs.

    You'll also want to utilize Oetiker clamps. Gear clamps will damage the hose. You'll need two different sizes of clamps, the larger for the 5/16 barbs, 16700016, and the smaller for the 1/4, 16700010. Amazon sells these in small quantities. Of course, the size could change with the type and brand of hose you utilize something other than the MPI.
